Desserts are having their moment thanks to such experimental creations as the cronut, chocolate chip shot glasses and more; the Burnt Almond Torte is another reason to indulge in some sweets this year and forever more. Touted as America's best cake, it is a heavenly experience that involves the lightest of buttercreams, candied toasted almonds and cloud-like cake.
Baked by Prantl's Bakery, which is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Burnt Almond Torte is a treat every local and tourist should enjoy at least once in their lives. Considering that Bon Appetit has named Pittsburgh the best new food city of 2014, travellers will seem inclined to visit for more reasons than one. There is also a travel version of the Burnt Almond Torte for those who won't be in the area soon enough.
